Comparison of Honda City vs Maruti Ciaz
Honda City is synonymous with the name "sedan" in India. It is as yet
the main car in the best 10 cars sold in India. Is the new Maruti Suzuki
Ciaz sufficiently enough to give a firm and strong rivalry to the Honda
City? Let us see:
THE ACTUAL NUMBERS:
Maruti Suzuki's moderate sized sedan Ciaz has figured out how to race
to the best spot in its segment (A3+) this year. Numbers demonstrate
that the Ciaz has sold 53,644 units from April 2016 to January 2017,
which is 19% higher than its nearest rival Honda City.
Maruti, on average, sells more than 5,500 units of the Ciaz consistently.
In examination, the City's monthly sales average is around 5,000 units
every month. This, even after the expansion in sales saw after the
dispatch of the facelift. The accomplishment of the Ciaz can be credited
to its spacious cabin, economical motors and the essentially lower price
tag. Additionally, the City's assemble quality has endured since the
launched of the current model. However the fourth era Honda City has
sold more than 2,00,000 duplicates in India. In any case, with the Ciaz
picking up force, the City appears to have effectively missed out to
Maruti's contender. Additionally, the underlying buzz around the new
2017 City appears to blurring quick. After an impressive drop in
numbers in March, the Ciaz has one again re-asserted the lost domain
in April'17 as the numbers given in the table below:
The Honda City has a wide chrome strip that keeps running between
the headlights with the exceptionally conspicuous, on the front profile.
Honda's new outline theory of wing face is exceptionally clear in the
sedan. A part of precise planning has been actualized all through the
car, from the sharp looking front guard to the headlamp outline, which
is part into three areas which incorporate the linkers, high and low
beam lights. The taillamp is smooth and is part between the back boot
lid and back of the car. The side profile, has not changed much from the
more established variations, notwithstanding, the strong wheel curves
give you the feeling of a solid sedan.
The Ciaz has an all-new design by Maruti which is totally dissimilar to
their past cars. The front fascia is exquisite with lines and edges running
smoothly. The Ciaz is a bigger looking car in contrast with the Honda
City, this affirms the thought promoted by the producer for a greater,
roomier car, along these lines, the outside gives you the impression of a
vast car. On the back profile, the taillamps suggests that it has taken a
sign from one of the contenders and given it a last touch to isolate it
from others. In any case, the outlining is classy and gives an extremely
sedan like feel. The side profile is extremely exquisite and demonstrates
that you have a great amount of space inside the cabin.
Both the cars have exceptionally attractive looks which will definitely
attract the prospective purchasers. Honda City has a smooth and stylish
look whereas Ciaz has an intense and muscle look. Both the cars have
chrome complements on the grille which influence them to look more
premium. The Ciaz has got projector lights whereas the City has got LED
lights with Day Time Running Lamps (DRL's). The cars, likewise, have
exceptionally upmarket interiors yet in general plastic quality, Ciaz has
an edge over the City.
The Ciaz has better high speed characteristics and feels more planted
on highways while the City might tend to roll and pitch a little bit. Cabin
insulation is also very good on the Ciaz and the suspension operates
noiselessly. The City though, has a sharper steering that offers more in
terms of feedback.
Features-wise, the City edges ahead thanks to the recent updates. It
gets LED headlamps, LED daytime running lamps, LED taillamps which
the Ciaz’s features list does not include. However, both get leather
seats, climate control, rear air-con vents, steering-mounted audio and
telephone buttons, touch screens, keyless go, rear-view cameras
(though the City does without sensors) and dual airbags. The top of the
line variant of the City also features a sunroof, cruise control and
paddle shifters for the automatic variant. Except for additional features
like cruise control and a sunroof on the top-end City, both cars are
identical in terms of features offered.
The Honda City features are good and unique with the Chrome front
grille, garnish for the rear license plate, VX gets the electric sunroof,
alloy wheels, chrome outer door handles, turn indicators on ORVM,
push start/stop button, most importantly – the paddle shift and
electrically foldable ORVMs, keyless boot door opener, rear reading and
map lights, leather seats, these are not seen in the SV variant.
Maruti Ciaz includes projector headlamps, alloy wheels, chrome front
grille across all variants, turn indicators on ORVM on both the variant,
push start/stop on Zxi only, auto AC, second row AC vents, footwell
lamps for the Zxi, electric boot door opener on both variants, as for the
audio system, the Ciaz lacks the touch screen infotainment system,
however, it does come with BlueTooth connectivity.
The Ciaz is really very fuel efficient. The Petrol model returns up to
20.73 KMPL with Manual Transmission. Its Automatic Petrol model
offers 19.2 KMPL. The Diesel model offers 28.09 KMPL. The Ciaz Diesel
is the most fuel efficient car in the country.The new Honda City returns
up to 17.40 KMPL on the Petrol Manual and 18 KMPL on the Petrol
Automatic. The City Diesel offers a mileage of up to 25.6 KMPL. All
diesel variants of Ciaz come with hybrid technology to boost the fuel
efficiency of the car. Though on paper, the Honda City clearly has more
power, clever power delivery and gearing on the Maruti Ciaz means the
difference is not that evident in on-road performance. The diesel Ciaz is
also faster to a 100kmph than the City. Ciaz feels more stable on the
highway as compared to City on triple digit speeds.
Petrol Manual – 20.73 KMPL
Petrol Automatic – 19.12 KMPL
Diesel Manual – 28.09 KMPL
Petrol Manual – 17.40 KMPL
Petrol Automatic – 18.00 KMPL
Diesel Manual – 25.6 KMPL
As for the car safety features, both the Honda City variants (SV & VX)
come with dual airbags and ABS with EBD, auto door lock by speed and
a whole lot of minor details like car immobilizer, security alarm, and
driver seatbelt reminder.
The Maruti Ciaz offers dual airbags, ABS with EBD, reverse parking
sensors and camera, and a whole lot of small yet good features like the
immobilizer, seat belt reminder, security alarm, auto day/night.
These car security features are there in most of the cars these days but
they don’t really ensure the security of the car itself. But, that should
not be a concern now too with the introduction of CAR KNIGHT in the
market. Car Knight allows the car to be parked anywhere without the
worry of its theft, all with the power of your finger impressions. A
compact device, that unlocks the engine of the car only when one gives
the recorded fingerprint (one can recored upto 150 fingerprints) or a 4digit PIN that one sets according to one’s convenience. The product
also has a valet mode that disables the device when you lend your car
for parking in valet, or to someone on temporary basis but do no wish
to reveal the code. It can be enabled again on entering the PIN. The
product has been conceptualised by FATE INDIA, and is available only at
selected dealers or on order basis currently at www.fateindia.com.

Looking at the above figures, Ciaz definitely has an edge with the lower
prices with almost the same features as City, even in its top end
variants. But, loyalists of the brands will true to their love and City
hopefully, might pick up its sales that it deserves. And, it remains to see
how Ciaz continues its market capture.
